The schedule also features several marquee matchups with the Boston Celtics, Miami Heat and the two-time defending NBA Champion L.A. Lakers. Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and the defending Eastern Conference Champion Celtics come to Charlotte on Saturday, Dec. 11 and Monday, Feb. 7.

    Agreed. I don't know what they're smoking in Charlotte, but some of those trades don't make any sense at all, and they never should have let Felton go.

    Nice to see them get some national tv recognition this season. Too bad we probably won't be in the playoffs
